India vs Sri Lanka 2nd T20 Match Prediction, Dream 11 Prediction & Betting Tips, Odds and Live Score – 26 Feb 2022

The series between India and Sri Lanka was always going to be a battle of the bench strength of the two teams, given that neither side was able to field a full team. First-match results were no different as India’s bench strength easily outmatched Sri Lanka’s in the first game. India vs Sri Lanka 2nd T20 Match Prediction

When the two sides meet again, Sri Lanka will be hoping to make amends and get back into the series. On Saturday, February 26th, 2022, they’ll meet again at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala for the second time.

IND vs SL Team Previews


Defending their first-innings total was clearly a priority for India, based on how they approached the second match’s play. With India allowing plenty of room for Venkatesh Iyer and Deepak Hoods to bowl, none of India’s first four frontline bowlers completed their quota of four overs. In spite of the fact that they had a massive total to fall back on, India’s World Cup preparations and search for a better batting all-rounder could lead to a lot more experimentation in the upcoming match.

In their recent matches, India have made it clear that they intend to bat first. They took some time to settle in, but once they did, they proved to be a formidable opponent. Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma dominated the Sri Lankan attack in the previous game, too. Despite being batting third, Shreyas Iyer put in an impressive performance, timing his innings to a tee.

Even though India’s T20I cricket momentum is on the upswing, things aren’t all rainbows and rainbows for them. There has been some questionable fielding, particularly at the plate, in recent games, which can be a game-changing factor, especially when the stakes are high.

Sanju Samson and Ruturaj Gaikwad are a formidable duo, and India wants to give them a good run. Ruturaj Gaikwad was unable to participate in the first game due to injury, while Samson was unable to demonstrate his bat skills. Assuming he doesn’t play in any of the remaining games, India will likely go into the upcoming match with an unchanged team.

Indians are a better-equipped team, and they proved it in the first match of this series with a crushing win. Their goal is to win this game so that the third match can be used to test new strategies. It will be extremely difficult to beat them if they don’t lose their edge and continue to play as well as they have been.

Sri Lanka

Despite their consolation victory over Australia in the final match of their Australian tour, Sri Lanka was left without many of its top players for the upcoming tour to India. Having already been in rebuilding mode, Sri Lanka’s full strength team had to completely rejig their bowling plans with the absence of Wandindu Hasaranga and Maheesh Theekshana.

The lack of preparation by the Sri Lankan bowlers was on display in the series opener as well. To improve in the second match, the Indian batsmen will have to do better than what they did the first time. Their fast bowlers will benefit from the better conditions in Dharamsala and will aim to take early wickets in the upcoming match.

However, since the start of their Australian tour, Sri Lanka’s batting has been in disarray. The absence of Wandindu Hasaranga from their middle-order has undoubtedly disrupted their lineup. In addition to a lack of desire, their batting has also lacked the ability to score big totals. Nonetheless, the Sri Lankan team is capable of wreaking havoc on the bowlers if they execute their plans correctly.

Overall, Sri Lanka has a lot of work to do before the upcoming match, as their first-choice players are unavailable. Their fast bowlers will be able to take advantage of the favourable conditions. Sri Lanka will have a good chance if they can restrict India to a modest total and do that.

Sri Lanka Playing 11

Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis(wk), Charith Asalanka, Dinesh Chandimal, Janith Liyanage, Dasun Shanaka (c), Chamika Karunaratne, Dushmantha Chameera, Praveen Jayawickrama, Maheesh Theekshana, Lahiru Kumara.

IND vs SL Betting Tips

As a result, the outcome of this series is in jeopardy. The series will be decided if India wins the second match, and the third match will be a washout. However, a win for Sri Lanka would open up the series, allowing the third match to be decided by a single run. India is clearly the better team based on recent performances. Indian team combinations give them an advantage over their opponents, even though they are both far from full strength. With that in mind, as well as the previously mentioned factors, betting on India to win this match seems like the best option.
